I was interviewed on-campus
at IIT Kanpur for
Test Technical Interview HR Interview
There were 4 sections to the test:
1st section, verbal - 15 questions : CAT type 1 mark questions.
2nd section, probability: 3 marks questions based on probability and stats.
3rd section, finance: Finance with one/two marks question (10 -15 questions based on bonds, maintenance margin, etc not something which normal student would know unless one has some background.)
4th section, quant: quantitative ability with CAT type questions.
Do prepare for CAT and read Newspaper.
- Question 1: Why not PhD when your CPI is high ?
It was a 10-12 min interview and the questions were generally based on internship project. There were no puzzles but some of my other batch mates were asked puzzles.
A good knowledge of Probability-Stats will be helpful. Have at least one attractive project, know all about it and try to drive your interview.
- Question 1: Why finance ?
- Question 2: What is NIFTY ?
- Question 3: What is the index value ?
Make sure you attend the PPT. Note some statistics and some attractive points which are mentioned during the PPT.
Talk to seniors who are working there, make sure you know the work properly.
